The layout of our house

An Australian Heritage House Welcomes a Modern Addition


An artist home-owner tasked Splinter Culture to open up up and design an addition to their existing heritage property. The Colonnade Residence transitions to a daring, present day extension made of concrete showcasing a row of columns – a colonnade – running down the middle, thus connecting the older component of the home with the garden. The outcome is a perfectly blended property mullet which is contemporary, peaceful, and stress-free for the huge family to delight in.

The regular entrance of the house characteristics an intersecting gabled roof, which juxtaposes the minimum geometric rooflines marking the newest section of the residence.

The Colonnade Dwelling is outfitted with solar hot h2o, water tanks, and photovoltaics that do the job alongside one another for large effectiveness.

The existing composition properties the personal locations of the residence where by most individuals drive additional privacy with closed off areas. The new part is open up and absolutely free flowing marking the great spot for relatives gatherings and attendees.

The concrete columns filter and monitor light-weight as it passes from the swimming pool and backyard to the interior living spaces. In amongst the columns cozy window ledges offer everyday sitting down places to appreciate garden sights.

A generally monochromatic shade palette graces the interior as a result of hand-brushed woods, plasters, concrete, and ceramic tiles. In addition, dim mirrors, metal sheeting, and ornamental steelwork generate reflective surfaces among the muted tones.

The black bar stools are essentially from K-mart, proving good design doesn’t have to price tag a fortune!

Site visitors pass by the authentic entrance of the black painted house to enter the place the two constructions fulfill on the side.
